On today's show, we trade in one Wilson for two MTIs- sounds like a deal! Mark's pop sits in on this episode where we officially begin the JYu PS2 project, give an update Justin's floating apartment, provide video game console updates, and reminisce about pogs, mechanical pencils, and the good ol' days when places like Walmart didn't exist.
Mark's Dad visits the studio today and sits in on the podcast and Mark replaces Wilson on the show- two Marks for the price of one! And the good news keeps on coming when Jeff busts out his dusty old PS2! That's right, I'm now an official "gamer!" He also brings along God of War for me, so I'm really excited to go home and set it all up and get to the gaming. Also, a really big thanks goes out to all of the awesome listeners that offered their old PS1 and PS2 games, I really appreciate it. Someone even offered their old Dreamcast system and a ton of titles to go along with it! Now that I think about it, it'd be better if I just borrowed a few games at a time, I know you guys can trade in those old titles for some serious $$$!
We also talk about a few stories about the Olympic events and some more video game mumbo jumbo, but my favorite part of today's show was when we reminisce about school supplies! Apparently Walmart is giving away shopping lists supposedly specified by local school teachers, but the thing is, they're fabricated! As a matter of fact, several of the items on these lists are actually banned from school! All this talk about grade school takes me back...I remember being a young lad, doe-eyed and ready to take on the world one fry daddy at a time and all the useless, expensive gear that got lumped into "back to school." Trapper keepers, lunch boxes, thermoses filled with chow mein (no joke, it's an Asian thing), and POGS! Man, I was so good at pogs that I didn't even use the cardboard discs, I played for slammers! BAM!
